Stegosaurus, Natural History Museum, London.


The image is one of a series by palaeoartist Robert Nicholls, commissioned by the Museum and based on its latest star exhibit, the most complete Stegosaurus skeleton ever found.
The fossil remains were discovered in the rocks of the Morrison Formation, a geological deposit in the United States of America.
The dinosaur lived during the Late Jurassic, approximately 150 million years ago.
Most of the body is preserved, including the back plates and tail spines, which scientists think were used to lash out at predators.
